The First Hip-Hop Billionaire
Rolex Day-Date Masterpiece
Dr. Dre recently signed a deal to sell his namesake brand to Apple for $3 Billion, which made him a Billionare, and in his own words, Dre referred to himself as "Hip-Hop's First Billionaire." Dr. Dre is a hip hop artist that started his Dr. Dre brand with legendary recording producer, Jimmy Lovine. Together they built out the brand to include making Dr. Dre "Beats", over the ear headphones, as well as Beats Music. As previously mentioned, Apple recently acquired Beats by Dr. Dre, and now Dr. Dre and Jimmy Lovine are Apple employees. Dr. Dre is pictured below wearing his Rolex Masterpiece Day-Date.
